Location: Faulconbridge, Lower Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia

Medically Retired for 15yrs though still a younger bloke.
Married to a beaut lady since 1980; 3 children & 2 grand-children.
I trained in the Royal Australian Navy - Engineering branch.

Enjoy making wooden toys for children to play with, plus collect old and simple toy plans.
I have too small a shed for the quantity of secondhand timber I have collected.
Also need more room for my machinery.

Enjoyed your comments on my D8. One of the first models I made was a 1/16 scale 325 CAT excavator that I designed. It was made as a present for a mans retirement, per his son. I made it out of Walnut, Cherry and sycamore. The son had mentioned painting itCAT yellow, however I showed him the natural wood and he was happy with it that way. I will post it some day. Later
